    Interesting .. To be honest I am also very tempted not to turn it off any more and have it ready when wake up right away. So I have noticed when I click the power button once the display turns off, is this the sleep mode ? Haven't found any other way of putting it to sleep but the question now is. If I place it into my sleeve case would there be a cooling problem? Would it be damaged in time. I ask be because it is m first iPad and to. Be honest ive never searched for any info on how these devices cool, do they need any cooling at all ?

    I have only turned mine off when there is a serious problem that requires rebooting - which is maybe once or twice in the month and a half I've had it.

    I've never had a cooling problem either when using it for several hours at a time in the case, or letting it sit asleep in the case. It hasn't left its case once since I bought the case about 3-4 days after getting the iPad. It never really seems to get warm, even with several hours' straight use.

    Sleep mode, battery seemingly lasts forever lol
    When you’ve seen beyond yourself -
    Then you may find peace of mind, is waiting there -
    And the time will come when you see we’re all one,
    And life flows on within you and without you.

    there's a God shaped hole in all of us...

    Do you leave your data on?

    I know after checking my T-Mobile account that the iPad consumes small amounts of data even when its in sleep mode. I only turn data on when I need it.

    Yes, 3G and Wifi is always on, in case one drops out.

    Tonight, both will be turned off for better comparison

    If you have wifi at home (obviously I don't know where you are using it) shouldn't it default to the wifi over the 3G....I'm just asking as I don't know.....I only have the wifi model?
